What A Crazy Summer!

My solo show at the Tarpey Gallery closed back in August…there’s just time to catch the excellent following exhibition of work by the painter Marek Tobolewski – it finishes this weekend coming – and is followed from the 1st October by a fantastic collection of Sarah R Key’s paintings.

In the latter part of August the exchange exhibition with the Gotland Artists Association took place at the GoCart Gallery in Visby.  We took a ferry from Harwich to Esbjerg in Denmark and drove across Denmark and Sweden to Oskarshamn where we caught the Gotland ferry to Visby.  What a trip!

Since returning home I have also been away in Larnaca, Cyprus examine students on the MA validated by the University of Northampton.

Yes, al in all a crazy summer…



Following on from my solo show at the Tarpey Gallery, I shall be exhibiting alongside other Harrington Mill Studios artists in the exhibition ‘Through A Glass Lightly’ at the GoCart Gallery in Visby, Gotland, Sweden.  This is the ‘return leg’ of an exchange project between Harrington Mill Studios and the Gotland Artists Association.  I am curating the show that will feature work by Dee Shiels, Lori Amor, Alison Whitmore, Justine Nettleton, Sarah R Key, Jackie Berridge, Michael Bruzon, Sooky Huh and myself from the Studios and invited artists who have exhibited with us, Robert Luzar, Anna Francis, Flore Gardner, Dan Roach, Paul crook and Beth Shapeero.  I am still drafting the introduction that will be posted here shortly.

Beyond The Horizon
